SIG has partnered with manufacturing execution systems producer ProLeiT to co-create a technology for food, beverage and dairy producers.

With this partnership, it will be able to offer producers advanced production technology and integrated software solutions to automate and control their production processes.

This deal forms part of SIG’s strategy to build smarter, more automated plants as part of its Smart Factory segment: “Digitisation is an important issue for all companies today, and the Internet of Things is constantly increasing in scope and relevance,” said Dr Thomas Wunderlich, vice president of sales in Dairies & Beverages at ProLeiT AG. “It’s therefore crucial for us to work with partners who develop innovative technologies and strategies together with us when implementing new application scenarios.

“With our partnership with SIG, we combine industry knowledge, an understanding of our
customers’ requirements and the solution portfolio of both providers to create a strong presence in the market. We look forward to opening a new chapter in MES development together with SIG.”
